University Teaches With Live Video

Lifesize - Video Conferencing

American Uni students are to be offered a chance to ‘attend’ lectures remotely, using modern video conferencing technologies.

That’s the case at least at the University of Arkansas’ Fayetteville campus, where a partnership with communications leader LifeSize promises much easier access to video from student desktops, laptops, tablet or smartphone devices. Therefore, thanks to the institution’s law library director and information technology services head, Randy Thompson, learners will soon be able to “immerse themselves in the lectures and discussions and participate as they were in the room with the rest of their colleagues”.

Popular seminars in agriculture and food law at Master’s degree level look to be the first targets for such access, says the IT services team at the college, while students in the university’s nursing programme have also been able to link with lecturers at a medical school three hours away.

And it’s not just the student body finding video helpful; both teaching and support staff at the University also report benefits from its introduction, especially in terms of faculty meetings and information sharing, says the school.

All this is being made possible by LifeSize ClearSea, the vendor’s easy-to-use high definition mobile video conferencing system.

LifeSize is the high definition video conferencing arm of IT giant Logitech.
